AceShowbiz – Ludacris had a song battle with Nelly in the Saturday, May 17 episode of Timbaland and Swizz Beatz‘s “Verzuz”. In the episode, Luda decided to treat fans to a snippet of his new song featuring Lil Wayne, only to get backlash.
He previewed the song, which was titled “Silence of the Lambs”, three times in a row. It made fans easy enough to catch the R. Kelly and Bill Cosby references in the lyrics.
Produced by Timbaland, the song opens with a mention of Bill as the lyrics read, “The world screwed if n****s pouring drinks like Bill Huxtable.” As if that wasn’t enought, Luda later rapped, “I love R. Kelly but around my daughters, I’m not comfortable.”
It didn’t take long before people on the Internet were coming after Luda for his questionable sentiment about Kelly. “Ludacris really thought it was appropriate to tell us he loves R.Kelly in 2020 and told us three times. I’m still in shock,” someone tweeted.
“I still can’t believe Ludacris played a new song with that R Kelly line THREE TIMES. Never let that man on live again,” another user wrote. “I’m still mad Ludacris previewed that Wayne song and dropped Cosby and R Kelly lines to start off the song. And ran it back like 5 times,” another person stated.
Someone else added, “Nelly won tonight off the strength of Ludacris shouting out out R. Kelly not once, not twice, but three times in a 10 minute window. I don’t make the rules.”
“Ludacris said ‘I love R. Kelly but around my daughters I’m not comfortable.’ Ehm I think you might want to REWRITE THAT LINE yunno,” a fan suggested. “Ludacris giving us bill cosby, r. kelly and roseanne bars in 2020 along with a chance the rapper feature. who asked for this? more importantly,” one other said, referring to Luda’s lyrics in which he shaded Roseanne Barr by declaring that racists were still drinking “from Roseanne’s bar.”
